Ever wonder how animals travel so easily over snow? While a fox is light to begin with, weighing in at only around 20 to 30 pounds, traveling over the snow can still be a difficult venture. I had the opportunity to capture this image showing the bottom of the fox's front foot. I cropped the image in significantly to better show just how padded the foot bottom is with fur, which not only insulates the fox's foot to help keep it warm but to also help it stay on top of the snow. Another of nature's amazing adaptations!
